Mighty Magiswords is an American Flash animated fantasy-comedy online and television series created by Kyle A. Carrozza (creator of "MooBeard: The Cow Pirate" from Nicktoons' Random! Cartoons) specifically for Cartoon Network Video, being the network's first online original series. The web shorts officially premiered online on May 6, 2015 as well as the interactive games shown in the app, Cartoon Network Anything.

On June 13, 2016, it was confirmed that Mighty Magiswords was picked up as a full-length TV series and premiered on September 29, 2016 on Cartoon Network.[2] A sneak peek of the episode "Mushroom Menace" aired on September 5, 2016, prior to the official premiere date.


The series is about Vambre and Prohyas, a sibling team of "Warriors for Hire", who go on hilarious adventures and crazy quests around the world to find and collect magical swords.[3]

Background and production

Mighty Magiswords is created by Kyle A. Carrozza, an animator, voice actor, musician and storyboard artist who currently writes songs for The FuMP and was previously the creator, storyboard artist and voice actor for his short "MooBeard: The Cow Pirate" on Nicktoons Network series, Random! Cartoons. Produced in Flash animation, this series is the first original cartoon show on Cartoon Network made specifically for online.[3] These characters were created by Kyle when he was at high school in 1996[4] and was pitched to Cartoon Network in 2005-2006 under the names "Legendary Warriors for Hire" and to Mondo Media[5] in 2007-2008 as "Dungeons and Dayjobs"[6] before Cartoon Network picked it up in 2013. Most of the series is done in-house at Cartoon Network Studios while the oversea mid-production was done at Malaysian animation studio, Inspidea.

Critical reception

Mighty Magiswords has received mixed to average reviews. Some praise was for the animation and jokes, but some said that it didn't stand out as much as other Cartoon Network shows, with only a 5.1 IMDB score.[58] one mixed reaction came from Emily Ashby of Common Sense Media who wrote, "...Short on substance or value. Kids may not learn much from watching, but they'll undoubtedly enjoy the characters' antics and the laughable mayhem that ensues when each new magisword gets put to use."[59]
